I have a brand new camera, a Canon Rebel EOS T1i the two lens.  I just got it 2 days ago and these are my first pictures.  I hope I will improve with time and study, but for now I am happy with my efforts.

You have seen the place mats, napkins, silverware and two of the crystal glasses before,  the third one is a hock wine glass from Waterford.  The beautiful dishes and ducks to match came from Home Goods, the pink Potpourri was purchased by my DH for this table as were the flower petals.
Hope you have a great Thursday.

Mosaic Monday and Baby Goats

 mosaic monday

Time to run on over to Mary’s Little Red House and check out the list of mosaics for today.

 

Dec 2009 goats_AutoCollage_12_Images

This mosaic shows some of the Dec 2009 babies.

feb 2010 baby goats_AutoCollage_9_Images

These are the February 18th babies except for the small light tan and white in the lower left hand corner..this little girl was born the 19th. and 2 more not shown were born the 20th.

Yesterday, I was there when the last 2 were born and they came so fast, the Nannie was having a hard time cleaning them up, so the last one still had the sack over his face and was breathing thru his mouth.  I got to act as a mother and pull the sack off him. He is a big boy and because of this size, had trouble standing at first.  I did what I could to get him up….they need to get up as soon as possible.  The little girl born first, just got right up after a couple of tries and started eating. 

I never realize what a great feeling it is to watch new life come into the world and then see them struggle to stand and eat.

A true miracle of God!

In the first chapter of the Bible, God made mankind responsible for His animals (Genesis 1-28). All animals are God's animals (Psalm 50:10) and we are answerable to God for our treatment, care and protection of them.

Happy Mosaic Monday.
